First help student

The last December days at the institutes and other institutions of higher education, as a situation, work wonders. Groupmates disappear from the beginning of the semester, crowds of students rush along the corridors with dusty records and written notebooks with lectures; . The culprit of this whole nightmare is the winter session. Speaking of mobile phones. Now they have to eat almost all students, so the trivial task begins: but not to adapt them in any way for solving tactical, more precisely, mathematical tasks in educational work, also when passing exams? Such functionality of the phone would please students of technical universities.

No sooner said than done. Go to the page of the project Calc also on the appropriate link we upload a suitable midlet. Various versions of the program are available, including for devices that support the MIDP 2.0 specification, but are similar for the new version as well as Siemens. A full list of supported phones is available on the developer’s web page.

After installing the application in memory, you will need a little tweaking. In the first couple of steps, you need to decide on the control keys, but in the third, select the text smoothing mode (Smooth font), which greatly facilitates its perception on high-quality color displays. However, it is also allowed to start fine-tuning the parameters later.

The possibilities of this Java calculator are truly enormous, and they are more than enough even for the protection of a doctoral dissertation. Calc is able to build graphs, to produce engineering, scientific, static and financial calculations. In addition, work with matrices is also supported by the conversion of physical quantities, but by turning on the programming mode, it is allowed to adapt the phone to solve almost any tasks, because the program has more than two hundred functions!

Managing the whole bunch of operations is not so easy. This is also where the joystick of the phone also comes to help, as well as the menu of the calculator, which is specially divided into separate functions. Novice users will undoubtedly benefit from the following diagram explaining the tree structure of the menu: For example, in order to go to the section of basic mathematical operations, we go to the essence of the menu and push the joystick up. And for a static calculation, you will have to “float” in a friend of the course: once down (Special tab) and then right (Stat tab). At first, all the little things are confused, but over time, such an organization of the program menu blocks itself one hundred percent.

We also add that, if desired, it is possible to select one of four font sizes, switch to full-screen mode (only for MIDP 2.0 version), clear the saved data, and also reset all previously set settings.

In general, it's time to throw away your ancient calculator.
